For some reason I find this picture hysterically funny – the laugh for today – amid all the allegations of abuse to have the dogs tethered and running day after day. Dogs like to work, to do the things they are bred for. If you leave them just lying around being ‘natural’ they get grumpy and yappy. They make their own work projects such as sending off the mailgirl every day.
Whatever, I came across this picture while looking for this year’s very chic team all wearing hot pink boots as they tore across Alaska:
The coat for warmth and the flare, tall and tasselled, attached to the neckband of the harness along with bells for visibility perhaps. The pictures give little hint of being caught in a blizzard white-out.
